This could take some time...

We've sure come a long way from the PDP11 comps we were using in my uni days.

Slide rules were brill. I have still got two of mine from my drawing office and night school days.
And I bet, if I rummaged deep enough I could find a set of my original log tables.

Strangely enough, I found my sliderule yesterday.

Perhaps I should list it on eBay as an antique  :-X
